One perk of having young adult daughters is they can teach you how to put on makeup. Believe me, I need all the help I can get. Mine have been trying to show me how to use liquid eyeliner. (Yes, after 16 years living in the Middle East, I finally broke down and got on the eyeliner train.)
Most mornings, my hand shakes a bit because applying eyeliner on 52 year old eyelids is not a task for the faint at heart. Sometimes I end up with black smudges after unsuccessful attempts to wipe off mistakes. Other days I manage a sleek, smooth line. Somehow makeup helps me feel more put together and ready for the day ahead.
